Clear Springs Church News ews Our Sunshine Class Dinner was postponed. We hope that all the ladies of the church will remember the following date for the dinner; we will meet at the Dinner Bell Restaurant, in Florata, at 7 p.m. Thursday February 19th. Circumstances have also changed the date for the Valen- tine Party for the young people of our church. This party will be Friday night, Feb. 13th. At our business meeting last week it was decided we would begin some much needed re- pairs on the church building. Saturday morning the rhythm of singing saws and pounding of hammers were heard around the community as Pastor Williams and Willis Miller were already working to brace the heavy roof to stop further sagging. This was music to our ears because it is the symphony of progress, and preservation. As a traveler often must pause to review where he has come from in order to know where he is going, so a church family must take note of its. past to chart its future, correc- fly. This church building is it- self a constant reminder of the pioneer and self-sufficient spirit of our older members and friends. These people forged ahead and toiled for a special place of abode for the spirit in which they worshipped. We often salute these noble souls of yesterday, but we must do more than that. We must unite and work together to preserve and carry on with the dreams they had and strive to fulfill our own. Keeping in mind that vision- ary people will spin tales about what has been, but people of vision will hammer out what is to be. And in this case, main- tain and protect what we have, and say of them, "They did well with what they had and we should appreciate it enough to add to their efforts". You younger people must rea- lize that todays old people were once young and sooner than you think you will be the old people. To this end we feel that you will want to help keep this church building strengthen- ed with its needed repairs, and additions, and keep the congre-, gation refreshed with the spirit of hope as the victorious love of God prevails and encourage. This is another way of saying that an investment of your means, time and talent is an investment of the future - and all for your good. These are the FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK OF GARDEN CLUB Hi members! It is hardly worth my while to remind you of our meeting this Thursday, February 12, with this infor- mation being furnished by Radio Station, WAMI, Opp, Alabama, on the attractive bulletin board at the Post Office, and last (but not least), the Proclama- tion by our own co-op active Mayor Joe R. Evans; this meet- ing will be enjoyed by the mem- bership, I feel sure, as it will deal with and commemorate, the 200th birthday of our nation America; Mrs. Sadie Moon is Chairman of a committee for this important event with such names for her committee as Mrs. Georgia Mathews and Mrs. Ben Johnson; this alone makes us all know that we really have something BIG in store for us, so meet me there (Mrs. Juanita Radford's home with Mrs. Vas- sie Kimbrill as co-hostesses), which also makes us know that for sure, that part of the pro- gram meaning "Let's EAT" will be perfect in everyway for they know just how, and that means we'll be so pleased and delighted with it all. Until then ....... Vera. PERSONALS. Mr. E. H. Dean has return- ed home to George Town, South Carolina often visiting with rel- atives in Florala, Pensacola DeFuniak Springs, and Panama City.

MEETING RECAP... President Greg McClellan kicked off Paxton Garden Club's participation in our nation's bicentennial year by calling the first monthly meeting of 19% to order Tuesday morning, Jan- uary 26, at the Paxton Commun- ity Center. Giving the invoca- McLaney . tion opening the meeting was Betty Mixon with the traditional reading of the Garden Club Prayer (reprinted at the close of this article). A business meeting was held and members not present, are reminded to bring garden books for club library to the next meeting. "The Popular Pansy", theme of the program, was presented by Betty Mixon. Noted below are some highlights from this high- ly enlightening program. "Pansies have been traced bac:~ to 16th & 17th Century England. A minimum of care will produce an abundance of flowers from these winter bloomers. Pansies should not be planted over three years in the same location due to pyth- ium, a fungus which can build up in the soil. They are ex- cellent choices for low bor- ders, bedding, between other flowers, in planters or window boxes. Very few diseases and almost no insects attack this attractive baby-faced flower." NOTE...
